We have managed to secure two of the country's top paddlesport  coaches for an entertaining evening centered around Whitewater Safety & Rescue.

 

Tom Parker sits on the British Canoeing White Water Technical Panel and is a Home Nation Trainer for the Whitewater Safety & Rescue and Advanced Whitewater Safety & Rescue Courses.

Marianne Davies - Learning in the ugly zone: the importance of play & exploration.

2nd May 2020

Skilled performers seem to delight in engaging at the edges of their ability; trying, failing, trying again, failing again. Like children playing, they are exploring while they are practising.

 

What is going on when performers develop their skills through play and exploration? When what they have done in the past starts to break down and they find new solutions beginning to emerge? It looks ugly – because at the heart of what these athletes are doing is a movement into their Ugly Zone!”

 

In this talk, we will explore concepts for understanding what is going on when you can start to play and explore in the ugly zone!
